Will I lose sound quality going to a Carpc with my Quality System?
hey whats up guys, I am somewhat a newbie to this carpc subject but not a newbie with pcs. Ive been reading up on this topic for quite a while and it looks good, but here's the deal. Im currently running a alpine h/u but I really want a 6.5" or 7" screen in my dash to watch dvd's and use navigation. i have a 02 mustang saleen and both the eclipse/kenwood 6.5" will fit nicley. But so will a Lilliput or a Xenarc 7" vga touchscreen. It seems the carpc will allow a little more functionality besides having a computer in your car!! which is awesome. I currnelty have 2 JL W6's 12inch subs getting power from a 750.2 Zapco amp and some Cdt audio 2-way comps getting powered from a 4 channel jl audio amp...obviously the eclipse/kenwood will be plug and play but the carpc will be some work..I now have 3 questions for you experienced users.
1. I have a nice system that sounds awesome and hits hard, even in my convertible. (good with the top down, insane with the top up). Going to a carpc setup, is their anyway to maintain or improve sound quality over my current alpine h/u or the kenwood 7017/eclipse I was planning on purchasing?
Am i going to loose sound quality?
2. How difficult is the setup going to be and am I going to have any compatibility issues? From what i read, My amps will be plugging into my soundcard with some type of stereo/rca adapter and that will create sound.
3. The navigation systems for the carpc, are they better/same/worse compared to what comes on today's Lexus/Infiniti/Audi cars. Will the navigation system "speak" to me?
I debating whether to get the kenwood 7017 6.5 indash or setup a nice carpc system. thanks for the response in advance!!!
